Leesburg High Bowling Champion Mason Harding Recovering From Brain Surgery

1.2 min read| Published On: March 22nd, 2024|

Please send your thoughts and prayers to Leesburg High School student Mason Harding who’s a Leesburg High Bowling Champion. Mason is now paralyzed on his right side after brain surgery. He’s working hard to recover. ?❤️

From his Mother: Mason Harding has been living the last few years with epileptic seizures. They were getting so severe that something had to be done sooner than later. Mason underwent months of testing and trials to find a resolution for his epilepsy. None of them were successful.

On February 23rd, Mason underwent a temporal lobe disconnection as well as an amygdalohippocampectomy to cure his epilepsy. He came out of surgery, and the surgeon said there was a small hemorrhage, but he looked to the neurologist, and he said it would clot and dissipate, so he decided not to chase it. Unfortunately, that did not clot and did not dissipate.

They had to rush Mason back in an hour and a half later because he was hemorrhaging. They were able to save Mason, but it left him paralyzed on his right side. Since then, he has been working very hard for a recovery that is unknown. He has made great strides and is walking with assistance, moving his right arm, and working on that smile. Anytime there is damage to the brain, 100% recovery can’t be guaranteed.

We are hopeful that with all the thoughts, prayers, and hard work from Mason’s medical professionals and Mason’s hard work, he will make a full recovery. He has been admitted for 20 days at this point, with no release date yet. With this come never-ending medical bills, missed days at work, and a transition back to life at home.

Any and all donations are greatly appreciated, even if they are just thoughts or prayers. This has been written on behalf of my sister, Janine Armstrong, Mason’s mother.
